Craft Beer Night in Highlands

If you miss those days when Helen’s Barn was the place to gather for an evening’s worth of dancing and kick-your-heels-up celebration, mark your calendar for the Third Annual Rotary Craft Beer Night, set for Thursday, September 21.

Raise the roof, raise a pint, raise a sweat, and raise some funds for this third annual party. It’ll be staged from 6:00 to 9:00 P.M. Thursday, September 21, at Old Edwards Inn & Spa’s Farm.

Participants will enjoy a variety of local and regional craft beers and lite bites from area restaurants. Establishments represented include Wolfgang’s Restaurant and Wine Bistro, Meritage Bistro, Ugly Dog Public House, and Kilwin’s.  Wine and non-alcoholic beverages will also be served. 

Revelers will also be treated to great rockin’ music, perfect for cutting loose on the dance floor. Setting the pace for the evening is Timeless Highway Bluegrass Band  with Tommy Dodd on Steel Guitar. Timeless Highway has earned a national reputation for its exuberant Bluegrass and Country Swing Music.

Joining them will be powerhouse vocalist Katie Deal. She’s known for her passionate performances of the songs of country legend Patsy Cline.

Both musical acts are perfect for the kind of dancing that made Helen’s Barn central to the social scene of old-time Highlands. Both are sponsored by Diane and Ray McPhail.

Cost of the evening is $50 per person.  Tickets and reserved tables are on sale at

All of the monies raised by the event will benefit the programs and projects of The Rotary Club of Highlands.  Sponsors include Old Edwards Inn & Spa, Laurel Magazine, Diane and Ray McPhail and The Ugly Dog Public House.
